WESTMINSTER MARKET STATISTICS
It was gold and the train depot that brought the original residents of Westminster to the area but the warmth of the sun that kept them here. In fact, years later in 2014, Westminster became the first city in our state to be designated a Platinum level “Solar Friendly Community” by the Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association (COSEIA). Important to its sunny lifestyle is Standley Lake Regional Park, a 3,000 acre park located in unincorporated Jefferson County. You can spend the afternoon water skiing, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, picnics, walking, running, cycling and wildlife viewing. Even napping is allowed.
If accessibility to metropolitan Denver is important to you, then you will be glad to know that Westminster offers easy access to all major highways including I-25, US-36, US-287, and many other major thoroughfares to easily connect you to home, to work and to recreation. Because Westminster is close to Denver and Boulder, you are close to major business centers, retail centers and a variety of entertainment and recreational facilities. Professional sports teams like the Rockies, Broncos, Avalanche, and Nuggets are located within minutes of Westminster. Denver International Airport (DIA) is close and convenient, just a 30 minute drive, without being too close.
If you prefer butterflies to business, the Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster is a conservatory housing 1,200 free-flying butterflies, including the brilliant Blue Morpho and a giant, endangered species from Australia. Just be careful where you sit inside this 30,000 square foot facility owned by the City of Westminster – the butterflies are everywhere.
What's most noticeable in Westminster is the wide variety and number of shopping districts. Residents can choose from popular chain stores to family-style restaurants, most within minutes of US-36. Locals often enjoy spending the afternoon at the Westminster Promenade, an outdoor pedestrian village home to dozens of restaurants and cafes, a movie theater, sculptures, hotel facilities, performance areas, interactive water features, walking trails and a three-rink ice arena.
